So, after banning all things Thomas the Tank Engine from Toby's first 18 months of life I had to give in reluctantly when I saw just how happy the chugga's made him but today I have embraced all things from the Island of Sodor after a Day out with Thomas at The Spa Valley Railway.
The excitment of heaing the trains peep peep to each other because you knew that the little ones were going to be even more excited, would Thomas control the Troublesome Trucks? Of course! 45 mins of a train journey pulled by Jinty plus a balloon animal on board AND a certificate that you get signed by the Fat Controller - ahem - sorry Sir Topham Hat.... ah, I can't wait to do it all again in October.....
